sorry but what is the ^ mean?
anonymous
  • anonymous
that is represents an exponential expression...so 4^(1/2).... is \[4^{1/2}\]
anonymous

which is related to multiplication and division

the "^" is used when typing because it's usually difficult to do a superscript

nova, a fractional exponent means you're taking a root. an exponent of 1/2 means a square root. an exponent of 1/3 means a cubed root.
